    Once again the sister was in Fairhaven, visiting family a lot of people came forward and attested to that fact, I actually have the trial transcript.

    Lizzie's sister Emma Borden was the real
    person who killed them.

    Then explain how you came to this conclusion while ignoring the fact that Emma was in fairhaven, and had many witnesses testify to this fact. I would like to know.

    Hmm interesting theory, I go back and forth, did Lizzie do it, she and Bridgett were the only ones at the house at the time, or did the uncle do it, I don't buy that Emma did it as she was away that day and many witnesses have attested to that fact and she had the ticket stub to prove she went.

    I happened to catch it yesterday. I was surprised how well Kristen Stewart handled herself. Chloe Sevigny was awesome as Lizzie. I had to look away at the final scene; it was horrifying.

    I'm pretty sure it was Oliver Hardy.

    Just read: The Trial of Lizzie Borden by Cara Robertson:

    What I found the most impressive about the book was that the author includes much information about society at the time of the murder and the way people perceived women. The men on Lizzie’s jury just couldn’t imagine a lady such as Lizzie committing such an atrocious act. For a women to do what was done to these two victims, she would have had to have been a monster and that would have shown in her countenance. The book also touches on what was thought to be the cause of “hysteria” in women.

    The book not only covers the trial in detail but also the discussions that were taking place outside of the courtroom and newspaper accountings, as well as rumors. Another plus is that the book is chock full of photos that help the details to life.

    May not be the same book, but I read one years ago with the same information.

    They could have just measured her head and checked it for bumps to see if she was guilty.
    Sometimes, especially back then; people knew how to disguise their countenance to hide their real nature; but there's no hiding those bumps on your skull from scientific examination.

    Would so enjoy to read that book.
    So Lizzie Borden's sister did it.

    The 3D walkthrough shows that the spots where the bodies were found haven't changed much. There's even a circle marking the exact spot where Lizzie's mother was found. It doesn't say that, but the original murder photos make for an easy comparison.

    I think if we all chip in we could buy it. Weather is pretty rough in Massachusetts, though. I am used to living in Florida.

    I love the inside. I really do. But there's something about the hallways that gives me the freaking creeps.
